Dear God Letters, Sole Hope

Dear God, I feel like a slacker.

Dear GodGod,
Well I have done it. I have gone and messed up.
Don’t you hate that?
You see I released my e-devotional a few weeks ago in an effort to raise funds for my trip to Africa with Soul Hope. They are funds that I honestly need to raise. Well, I don’t need to tell you that you see my bank account.
Yes, I see everything.
But in an effort to raise them this past week I broke my social media boundaries. I found myself spinning, and checking, and posting, and re-posting, pinning, and more pinning. Out of control!!! UG! I even thought about giving up my weekly Social Media Sabbath just to keep up the energy around the .99 cents sale.
Yes, I was watching. I was glad to see you didn’t give up your Sabbath.
God, by Friday I found myself just zapped and feeling like nothing was enough.
That happens when you allow others things to fill you up beside My truth about you.
So as I started thinking about this week and how to continue getting the word out about the devotional and the fundraising I started getting ill in my brain. I just can’t do it all again.
So, what are you going to do?
Not do it. But then I feel like a slacker. Like, I am supposed to be generating sales so I can support this trip so I don’t stress my family out financially.
There are a lot of “I’s” in that sentence. Are you a slacker?
No.
Is your purpose generating sales?
No. My purpose is in being your child, being wife, being mom, and in helping women satisfy their cravings for abundant life.
Do you trust me?
Yes.
Why do you trust me?
Because Your Word says so. I am to trust you with all my heart, soul, and mind. I am to not live in fear but believe that you have gone before me and have my back.
Can you do that?
Yes. I need to do that. I have to do that.
So what do you need to do about this whole devotional sale spinning?
Um….what if I just leave it? Like leave it for sale for .99 cents. No price jumps. THE END! I am going back to taking care of my mental health and trusting that You have opened this door with your purpose and priority at heart and that spinning myself silly on any social media outlet isn’t going to be what makes this happen. It is You! that is going to make this happen.

“He is ever present with me; at all times He goes before me. I will not live in fear or abandon my calling because He stands at my right hand.” Psalm 16:8 (Voice)

I see you Carey. I know you. This will be just fine.
I have my hope in You.

cover saleSo while I don’t plan on spinning myself silly on Social Media and I don’t want  you to either I would ask you to consider grabbing your copy today. All proceeds benefit my trip in March with Soul Hope. God time on-the-go for you and a trip to pour into lives of Ugandan families for me. Win! Win!

    Love your transparency. My heart needed this conversation with God too as I wait on him to provide something I feel my business needs. Thank you, Carey.
